    Every Bottom Covered

    Every Bottom Covered graphicEvery Bottom Covered is a diaper bank in Buffalo NY, Cattaraugus County and Erie County. It is officially expanding into Allegany County. A diaper bank is similar to a food bank with the difference that they distribute diapers and not food. It is the first of its kind in the area and will distribute diapers directly as well as partner with organizations who have like-minded missions to assist low-income families in Buffalo and surrounding counties.

    What does Every Bottom Covered provide?

    Every child under 3  (in diapers) in a qualifying household with diaper need will receives 50 diapers or 25 pull-ups each as well as a package of wipes per month. Qualifying programs are TANF, WIC, SNAP, Medicaid, and Other.  

    Currently we will have distribution sites at the Child Advocacy Center (to Clients Only), Jones Woman’s and Children’s clinic in Wellsville (to all current patients), Ardent Solutions in Wellsville, Cuba Cultural Center in Cuba and ACCORD's Access Center in Belmont. Each location will establish a monthly distribution date and time. Dates will be provided soon.  

    The objective of all Allegany County Early Childhood Development Coalition Members is to help families in Allegany County in every way possible. If you need food or other assistance to keep your family afloat and you have children under 3 then you also need diapers. 
    Thats a reality!!
